General After Care Instructions for Permanent Cosmetic Make-up Applications
For 7 –10 days following application of permanent cosmetics adhere to these Permanent Makeup Tips
GENTLY use a warm cloth to pat away the excess lymph and blood from the procedure area before you go to bed and upon rising in the morning.
Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers as they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.
Since 1988 we personally have suggested the application of petroleum 2-4 times daily until the procedure area has healed. Always use a clean cotton swab and not your fingertips. We suggest petroleum jelly as it is non-reactive in most clients. Dab off excess product with a new clean tissue.
Overuse of your healing product will not let the area heal properly. Always check for allergies to all products.
No make-up, tinting of lashes or brows, sun, soap, sauna, steam, exercise, Hot Yoga, Jacuzzi, swimming in chlorine pools or in the ocean, gardening, animals by the procedure area until area is completely healed post procedure and after all colour refreshers.
Before bathing, gently apply a light coating of petroleum on the procedure area using a clean cotton swab. Continue this regime until the procedure area has completely healed. The steam may express the pigment colour.
Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area while it is healing, pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue.
Use a waterproof ‘sun block’ after the procedure area has healed to prevent future fading of pigment colour.
Sleep on a CLEAN satin pillowcase and clean sheets while the procedure area is healing.
Aloe Vera and Carmex can pull the colour out of some clients procedure area, so we suggest that clients do not use these products while they are healing. Sometimes ‘Natural’ or ‘Organic’ products compromise the integrity of the pigment colour.
Remember all procedures must HEAL, PEEL, and FADE! This process may take up to 10 days.
Do not use ANY products that contain AHA’s, Vitamin A, Retinol A or similar lightening and peeling products on the procedure area. (Example Glycolic, Lactic Acids. Check your product labeling) It will fade your pigment colour. Read the ingredients on the back of any bottle of product that you will using. Tell your technician what you are using.
